The Social Commonwealth of Arichia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Charles Bernstein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.199 billion Arichians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbe Intelligentia. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arichian economy, worth 140 trillion Pecunia Corvums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,113 Pecunia Corvums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lottery winners spend most of their money on security, the Urbe Intelligentia XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime is totally unknown. Arichia's national animal is the Pacific Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arichia is ranked 210,645th in the world and 9,533rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -169.83 on the Hayek Index.
